Margret Ellen Rose Trimner Crews was born in Denver, Colorado on December 15, 1961 to Clark and Ann Rose. She died shortly after noon on July 9, 2018, at a hospital in Twin Falls, Idaho, after a long and gallant battle with liver cancer. She was surrounded by loving friends & family at the time of her death.
Margret Rose was born with a severe hearing loss, but it never slowed her down for long. She attended school in regular classrooms in Denver, continued her education earning a BA in elementary education, an MA in special education, and a second MA in deaf education. She taught at the Idaho School for the Deaf and Blind for 30 years, starting in 1988. She made an immense impact on her students as well as her fellow teachers and the staff at ISDB.
She married Lloyd Trimner in June, 1987. Lloyd died in 2004. She wed John Crews in April, 2005. She had a happy, effervescent personality that just lit up a room when she walked in. Her smile was contagious. Her enthusiasm for learning was vast -- rocks, birds, babies, plants, flowers, camping, Scouts, travel, people, games, sports,clothes, she wanted to learn about it, do it, share it and wear it. The joy she created and spread everywhere will be missed by all who met her.
